Functional and Basic skills courses - English, Maths and ESOL
English for speakers of other languages (ESOL)
We welcome both beginners and advanced speakers to our classes.
We offer a range of ESOL courses at different levels for residents who need to learn English, including:
- Pre-entry for beginners
- Entry 1, 2, 3
- Level 1
- Level 2
The courses develop a full range of skills and competencies in speaking, listening, reading and writing English. We offer ESOL courses at different times, including morning, afternoon and evening classes. There's access to nationally recognised qualifications accredited by City and Guilds.
Learners at entry-level can progress to the higher level ESOL courses at Level 1 and Level 2. All courses include grammar, study skills, British values, employability as well as communication skills for life and work in the UK.
Learners who successfully achieve qualifications after completing their course at Level 2 can progress to other academic or vocationally related courses such as supporting teaching and learning in schools or childcare courses.
New Ukrainian arrivals under the Ukraine Family Scheme and Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme are eligible to attend our free ESOL classes.
ESOL Skills Consultations are held every Monday from 10am to 2.30pm at the Thomas Calton Centre. We will help place you on the right course for your level.
